Nokia Concept Phone Stands Upright For Notifications

Recent product design graduate Jeremy Innes-Hopkins has conceptualized a phone, the Nokia Kinetic, that stands upright on a desk when a call or text message is received, physically visualizing the arrival of notifications. An embedded electromagnet located at the phone’s base shifts the weight to self-dock in an accommodating posture for users to quickly check the screen of the smartphone. The user can then simply tap the phone down to return it to a standby state.  Designed for the business user, this concept phone explores new ground for mobile devices to physically animate to complement audible and visual feedback.  The designer envisions the stand-up feature to be ideal for video-calls.
